love it! use as a serum

hydrates well, smells good, fresh in summer time, I use it as a serum or on the body when I dont have enough time to put a cream. really good product

Smooth Starter

The smell of frankincense is a great way to start the day. I love the Hydrating Essence because it creates a smooth base for the Age Defying Serum and allows a small amount of serum to go along way.

Hydrating Essence

This is absolutely beautiful… only a few drops required it smooths into my skin quickly making it feel so soft and hydrated and no greasy residue! Perfect

It took me a while to love it

I bought this last year and although I loved the scent straight away, I found it took me a while to appreciate its seemingly light texture but I came back to it after a couple of months and have to say I adore it now and use it twice a day. It’s like a drink for my skin. I use the Frankincense eye product first, then this and when it quickly soaks in, a moisturiser. I’ll definitely buy it again.

I always use it

very good as usual

Does what it says

Love this product, it's become my firm favourite for my 40+ year old skin. It'sa splurge but well worth it and lasts ages.

Wards off dryness from radiators!!

A lovely, rich cream that is not sticky to apply like some creams but gives a nice barrier to ward off the dryness that the winter effects cause in the skin.
